UK: 'The NHS should grow their own cannabis': Stockport campaigner's 'potty' plan (Colin Davies)

A prominent cannabis campaigner from Stockport has called on the NHS to GROW their own cannabis in a bid to save money on pharmaceutical drugs.

Colin Davies says he is continuing to lead a revolution on restrictive laws, which he claims are preventing terminally ill people from accessing treatment that could save them.

The 57-year-old, who famously once handed the Queen a bouquet of cannabis leaves, is keen to push a debate on the subject, and has been campaigning on the streets of Manchester in an effort to educate people on the health benefits and dangers of cannabis.

Last week he brought a six-foot cannabis plant to Piccadilly Gardens in a bid to highlight the drug’s medicinal qualities, and he intends to continue his campaign on Market Street this Saturday.

He said: “Let’s deal with this problem instead of pretending it’s not there. There are kids on the streets, and all they need to get access to cannabis is money.

“The demand for cannabis is huge. With a regulated, taxed supply chain, Manchester can lead the way to a safer way; a new way.

“Leaving cannabis in the black market is criminal itself.”

The cannabis crusader has calculated that if the drug was regulated safely, the revenue could amount to over £160 million a year in Manchester alone.
